Threnos - By Blood and By Earth (2004)
Threnos are a folk-ish atmospheric black metal band that no one really knows anything concrete about except that they went on to form Fauna and a few other bands and that this little demo served as something of a prototype for many later releases from the Cascadian-style scene. But really, all you need to know is that this is some damn good shit.
1. The Call - 4:12
2. Sparks Borne On the Wind - 5:35
3. The Return - 13:01
4. Adrift - 8:01
5. By Blood and By Earth - 15:54
